News: Panera Bread - Summer Offerings 2012

Panera Bread returns their Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad for Summer 2012 along with a slew of other new and returning menu items for a limited time only.

The Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad features all-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, romaine lettuce, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, fresh pineapple, Mandarin oranges, pecans, and fat-free poppyseed salad dressing.

In addition, there's a new salad available, the Chopped Chicken Cobb with Avocado Salad with all-natural, antibiotic-free chicken, romaine lettuce, tomatoes, Applewood-smoked bacon, Gorgonzola, hard-boiled eggs, dressed with herb vinaigrette, and topped with fresh avocado.

On the sandwich front, there's the new Roasted Turkey & Avocado BLT made with all-natural roasted turkey, Applewood-smoked bacon, lettuce, tomato, fresh avocado, and a reduced-fat olive oil mayo on freshly-baked sourdough.

Returning, there's Low-Fat Lemon Chicken Orzo Soup, a Mediterranean-inspired soup with chicken, orzo (a rice-shaped pasta), spinach, carrots, oregano, and basil simmered in a lemon-infused chicken broth and garnished with a lemon slice.

For drinks, Panera returns the Lowfat Black Cherry Smoothie and Frozen Lemonade.

The Low-Fat Black Cherry Smoothie Black blends a cherry fruit base with organic, low-fat Stonyfield Farm vanilla yogurt and ice.

Frozen Lemonade whirls up lemonade concentrate with ice and then finishes with a fresh lemon slice on top

In Panera's baked good selection, they return Flower Cookies and add new Peanut Butter Dream Cookies and Fresh Fruit Pastries.
Flower Cookies feature individual flower-shaped shortbread cookies with yellow icing and a sugar disc.

The new Peanut Butter Dream Cookie is made with all-natural peanut butter, toffee with almonds and peanut butter flavored chips. However, you'll have to wait a bit as it won't be available until July 12.

New Fresh Fruit Pastries take Panera's flaky pastry crust and fill them with pastry cream topped with fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries, fresh pineapple, and powdered sugar.

Like McDonald's, Panera is also adding blueberries to their oatmeal this summer with new Steel Cut Oatmeal with Summer Blueberries & Granola, featuring cooked organic steel cut oats, cinnamon crunch topping, fresh blueberries, and maple butter pecan granola.

Also new on the menu is the seasonal Summer Fruit Cup, a simple mix of fresh strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, and cantaloupe.
